PC DVI to HDMI Regza Connection

I am trying to configure my 52LX177 Regza to a ATI onboard HD3200 DVI output.

I have tried all types of user manual supported resolutions with no success. The PC input thru a VGA connection works great at 1024 x 768.

The DVI output works to display a 1280 x 720 display on a Dell LCD screen. So I know it is outputing a signal. After setting this up and switching the cables from the Dell to the Regza HDMI 2 or 3 input I get a no video signal message. When I return to the Dell LCD screen I see a window message that to use the DVI to HDMI connection I will need to use a separate audio source from the computer. This tells me the ATI software is seeing the connection to the Regza.

I have tried just about everthing I can think of and could really use some help from a expert.

Thanks

    We're seeing the same problem on our computer. The computer itself sees that the TV is attached but the TV shows a "NO Video Signal" error.

I'm getting the same problem with an ATI Radeon HD 2400 going to a Regza AV555D on HDMI 1. In order to get the picture back I have to call up the source menu and move down to HDMI 2 (without clicking OK, just hover) and wait for the screen to change. Then go back to HDMI 1 for a few seconds until it flickers and then press OK. A bit long winded and far from a solution but it's enough to sync it all back together again

How can i connect my sharp lc-26sh10u hdtv to laptop


Sharp had a standard VGA socket on it?, with an adaptor for connecting Component to it (via unused pins). but presumably you simply connect via a VGA lead and select the PC input on the menu
ure HD is cool on a computer monitor, but it's nothing like a huge HDTV.

How you do this will depend primarily on your PC and your HDTV. Lucky for us that they both share some common interfaces. The most common interface is DVI for computers and component for HDTVs. You have a few options here. S-Video and Composite won't work because they only carry SD signals and what fun would that be?
Before we get started I want to mention that all TV's are subjective to some overscan, yes all, but some more than others. At the very least 2% and at the very most 10%. Normally you don't notice, but when displaying your desktop on your HDTV even a small amount of overscan is noticeable. If you plan to watch movies and other videos it won't bother you. If you are planning to surf the web or play video games it can be more intrusive.

If you are one of the lucky ones who have a DVI port on your computer and a DVI or HDMI port on your HDTV. You can buy a180px-video_standards.png cable and set your computers output resolution to one that is supported by your HDTV. That is This seems pretty simple, but unfortunately it isn't always that simple. HDTVs and computer monitors don't always support the same resolutions. All the video standards are covered in this image. It is confusing but useful. The main thing to pick up from the image is that PC's don't use the same native resolution as HDTVs. Some HDTVs can accept standard PC resolutions like my Sharp AQUOS. To see which resolutions your HDTV supports check out the manual. Most companies have their manuals online so if you don't have yours head over to the manufacturer's website to look it up.

As you can see from the grid my HDTV supports most resolutions, the other great thing about this TV, is that there is no overscan at PC resolutions, but there is at normal HDTV resolutions. Unfortunately this is not the norm, but if you are one of the lucky few then you can grab a cable and connect it.sharpres_small.jpg

You can use VGA, component , DVI or HDMI to carry HD signals. Since digital is generally preferred you should use either DVI or HDMI. If your HDTV has a HDMI and since no computers have HDMI yet you will need to use an adapter from DVI to HDMI. Lucky for us, HDMI uses the same signaling technology as DVI.

Before you plug in your DVI cable from your PC to your HDTV be sure to set the resolution to one that is compatible with your HDTV. If your computer monitor and your HDTV only share one common resolution, set it to that until after you get a picture on the HDTV, then change it to the desired resolution. When possible always try to use the displays native resolution. For example my Sharp AQUOS's native resolution is 1280x768.

If the desired resolution isn't available from the display controls of your PC then you will need to add it. You can use apstrip_small.jpg great piece of software called Powerstrip to do this. Install it and then add the desired resolutions. To add a custom From here you can add a preset or user defined resolution. If your TV only accepts 1080i then use "1920x1080i 60hz". resolution to PowerStrip go into display profiles, then "Advanced timing options", then choose "Custom Resolutions". User defined resolutions are beyond the scope of this guide. The best article I have ever read on how to do this, is at the AVSForum. So check it out, but keep in mind that Powerstrip includes most of the HD resolutions for you, so you don't have to copy and paste the timings in yourself as described in the article. If you are a Mac user look for DisplayConfigX. Linux users need to add the custom resolution to their xorg.conf, you can find help here.

Unfortunately for most of us, it isn't this easy. Most HDTVs only accept a few resolutions and some only have component input. Since most PCs don't have component output, it can be a bit more difficult. Your best bet is to either buy a video card that supports component output like a Radeon X600, or to buy a VGA to component converter. Since the convert costs as much as a good video card, it usually makes sense to go with the new Video card. When shopping for a video card keep in mind that sometimes the adapter doesn't come with the card, even though the card supports it. My Radeon 9700 required me to buy an additional $29.99 adapter to unlock the component functionality. Luckily most of the newer Radeon cards now come with the cable. As always when using a cutting edge video card be sure to use the latest driver. But don't be scared to roll back a few versions if you have problems. The latest Radeon drivers have HDTV resolutions built right in, so there is no need for Powerstrip. You can still use it to tweak your setup if you want, not to mention the other 100 things it is good at. If you end up using the VGA to component adapter, then you will need Powerstrip to setup the correct resolution. Don't be afraid to try different resolutions to find the best one. I find that because all HDTVs have overscan, non standard HDTV resolutions can help to eliminate the overscan. It is important to keep in mind that it is possible to break your TV by sending it the wrong resolution. So make sure you understand what you are doing before you start to experiment too much. I wouldn't use any resolutions that is not preset without first reading the thread over at AVS.

Try it ..All the best

Panasonic hdtv 1080i CT-36HX41E..Can you hook up a PC to the tv for the monitor?


You can connect this to your computer if you have an S-Video output on your computer. This is the only supported connection on your TV. This model doesn't have a VGA, DVI, or HDMI port.

Hope that helps!

Ps3 hdmi to dvi blank screen no sound


Sometimes the PS3 automatically outputs it's video and audio signals in composite form. Try going back to your original composite cables and setting your system to output in HDMI. Those options would be under "Display Settings". Hope this helps!

Emerson 42 inch television flat screen HDTV: i connected a DVI to HDMI cable to dell computer screen to television in order to display computer screen to it but the signal isn't working, how do i...


Your Dell Monitor does not have a video output. The DVI/HDMI cable needs to run from the DVI-Out of you computer tower directly to the TVs HDMI input, ideally one with a red/white analog audio input next to it, because that cable only provides a video signal. If you don't have a DVI out on your computer, perhaps your TV has a VGA input. If your computer/video card only has one monitor connector, then you can only connect the Monitor OR the TV.

Hdmi will not work only use of component cables will.


Hello

The HDMI[1] input on your TV receives digital audio

and uncompressed digital video and audio from an

HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a

DVI[2] device.

This input is designed to accept HDCP[3] program

material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-

compliant[4] consumer electronic devices (such as a settop

box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).

The HDMI input is designed for best performance

with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.

To connect an HDMI device, you will need:

• one HDMI cable (type A connector)

For proper operation, it is recommended that you use

a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter

difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4

ft (5m).

HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.

Separate analog audio cables are not required (see

illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may

not output digital audio signals. In that case, you

may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.

However, if you connect analog audio cables with

this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will

not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.

To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset

properly, it is recommended that you follow

these procedures:

• When turning on your electronic components,

turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or

DVI device.

• When turning off your electronic components,

turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

To connect a DVI device, you will need:

• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable

(HDMI type A connector)

For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).

The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
OK

Picture works on tv but not dvd only sond works


Should be one of 2 problems:
  • Connections in wrong spot - double-check to make sure all cables are in correct inputs and outputs
  • DVD may be set to display video through a digital conneciton instead of analog (or vice-versa)
If it's not the connections, then try unplugging the DVD player, hitting the power button couple of times, plugging it back in, this may force it back to default settings (if you're not using DVI or HDMI connection).

DVI port on Sony Trinitron KV-32HS500 not standard.What fits it?


I've just recently connected my old 32" Sony KV-32HS510 to my HP G60 Laptop via an HDMI (laptop) to DVI HDTV port(TV) with a cable.

I'm running Windows Vista on my laptop with the nVidia software. Once I've plugged in the TV to the HDMI port, the software initializes (recognizes the TV) and then I can select it as my second 'monitor' in the nVidia control panel.

I found I had to tinker with the resolution settings in the nVidia program to find an optimal resolution where the sides of the screen weren't 'cut off' by the TV.. I finally ended up with the resolution 1152x768 (I believe). It might be different for everybody, as I'm told Vista might do things differently than XP... But you should be able to tinker with the resolution settings and adjust the screen size...

(hope this helps with the second post - above)

Panasonic 32" in LCD TC-32LX70


This sounds like the TV is not compatible at all to the display card in the computer.

Look in the TV's user book and see what the resolution is. It is also very important that the field or refresh rate is matched. Set the computer's display card to match exactly to the native mode of the TV set. This is for the resolution and the refresh rate.

Try the TV directly to the computer with the DVI to HDMI adabtor alone with no other monitor bridged in. If it works, then connect the computer monitor back up to share the feed. If the TV goes back out then you know that there is a conflict between the devices.

There is a way to do monitor sharing and each having different specs. There would be the need for an active monitor splitter with independent mode settings for each of the outputs. This is terribly expensive for home use.

In the past I have had problems with conversions between DVI and HDMI. There are a lot of complexities in the protocol for this and not every type of TV or monitor works well with this.
